Located near historic Savannah, this park borders Skidaway narrows, a part of Georgias intracoastal waterway. The park provides camping and picnicking surrounded by Spanish moss-draped live oaks. Trails wind through maritime forest and over salt marsh allowing visitors to watch for deer, fiddler crabs, raccoon, egrets and migrating birds such as colorful painted buntings. An observation tower provides another chance to watch for wildlife on this barrier island. A giant ground sloth replica, birding station, reptile room, and natural and cultural exhibits are featured in the interpretive center.
Very good trail to run on, when you can actually find it! At the beginning, the trail is very good but not marked at all. You definitely need to follow the map. Once you cross the road, the trail doesn't really exist anymore because of downed trees and probably floods and hurricanes. I followed the powerlines back to the road and was able to get back onto the trail.
This trail is a nice little walk. It's not long, but a great trail to bring your dog for a short walk. There are places to stop off and sit to enjoy the views. Wasn't able to go on the Big Ferry Trail Loop, which was under maintenance. The other 2 are nice.
This is a trail I walk regularly with my 5 year old son and dogs. It is very well maintained, the scenery is absolutely beautiful. There are many places to stop and rest comfortably if need be. I do suggest you bring some bug spray and a camera. :)
This trail has the look and feel of being somewhere other-worldly. Spanish moss draping everywhere, large palms and humid air. The walk/hike is easy and the flora and fauna are incredibly lush and diverse. I'm pretty sure the Tree of Life resides here, along the water. It's roots twisting and weaving with lizards scurrying about! A must to experience if you're in the area!!
Great spot I love to come to with my active toddler who can quite easily manage the trail (sandpiper and avian loop trails) walking along side me pointing out all the crabs he can see. First time we went we took a stroller and although the trail is supposed to be accessible we found the roots and sand too much for an every day stroller. Open areas are very harsh in the hot sun.
Easy hiking trails through the woods and along the water at this state park. Recommend hiking during fall or winter when weather is cool- during the summer months the heat and humidity are fierce! Great bird watching in the area. Also nice visitors center.

Great trail for jogging or hiking. The trail is marked very well. Be cautious of the tree roots in the trail.
